as an individual about $29,000 a year a. , if you have income below that, you qualify for the medi-cal expansion program. if you are an individual with 138 poverty level which translates to $16,000 a year for the individual, you would qualify for the expanded medi-cal programment. i did want to talk about services for seniors. traditional medi-cal will continue to exist pretty much unchanged as it exist today for seniors and again for persons with disabilities. the note we would make and there is some, again policy clarifications that we are waiting on around persons with disabilities who are underage 65 have more options today. currently they might be able to apply for the medical expansion program. some of this population maybe on a share cost for the medi-cal program. they may actually qualify for the medi-cal expansion which means they may qualify for the no cost medi-cal. there are some additional options for this group. that is one consideration. on the last one is persons turn 65 with the medi-cal expansion, they will transition from 64 to 65. at age 64 you are under these new rules and
i have is how is medi-cal changing. one of the important things to note is that traditional medi-cal will exist as it does today with the current rule. an of january, the medi-cal will be expanded to childless adults. that is a very big change. some of the rules will be based on a concept called modified adjusted gross income which is aligned to your tax returns some modifications to it. the benefits of traditional medi-cal and expansion medi-cal. but i will keep with the terms traditional medi-cal and expanded medi-cal. the benefits package between traditional and expanded medi-cal will be the same. there is one note that i think is of importance to this group is that there is some state and federal policy pending regarding long-term support and services for the new expanded popping. it's definitely, i don't want to say a gray area but there is some waivers that are pending and we are still waiting for some policy clarification around there. so to kind of bring that full around, i think most people are familiar with the medi-cal program. i did want to put that into the context of he
with staff bringing this application forward to you. at it point i want to hand over to creg with m-cal who will introduce the design team. >> good afternoon madam chair, commissioner hes, director lee. a pleasure to be before you. i wanted to introduce am cal and myself for those who don't know me. i've had a 20 year career in development in san francisco on the non profit private and public sector. most recently i have been before the redevelopment commission as a member of the commission administration and a couple of years left the city to start a bay area office for m-cal and i'm really excited to be involved in the first affordable development at the shipyard which has been a long time coming and we're really ex -- excited about the work and the way you've paved. we've got a great design team and we're excited about the proposal in front of you and the work we've done to date and we feel like with your nod of approval we'll be headed to breaking ground in the early part of next year. we're realry excited. i want to thank you forgiving m-cal the opportunity to date to work on its f
posterity from the contractor, of unsafe practices from cal osha that the department was not made aware of. those are handled for the specifically stated by the cal osha and there is a finding from all indications and as it relates to the contractor being hostile, and that is something that really is between the contractor and who hires them, along with the neighbors. that have the issues and there is nothing that the department can do from that perspective, to dictate that aspect of the issues that is being raised. but we can, again, say that it is that, the permit that the department did issue was to occupy, that portion of the right-of-way and usually the parking lane and in some cases the sidewalk, to provide, for the construction operation to the arborwell in this case, at two specific locations and we believe that the department really did nothing wrong in providing these permit and there has been no complaints until, you know, until it has to contact them and it was issued correctly, and you know, they had that appeal and so, that is with the board right now. we are able to
cal osha is not the final discussion that they passed down and so i don't think that it is admissible at this point because it is not their final decision. secondly it talks about the work of the civilian employee and he was not, he was released from the hospital that day, a worker was hurt, a branch fell on a work and her gave him a contusion and a shoulder. but he was admitted and released on the same day. and again, when the cal osha final decision did come out, it clearly stated that arborwell was not a accident and, we were not responsible and it was deemed an unfortunate accident. the part with the training, again, there was not an accident, cal osha did investigate but they did not practice for any housekeeping issues of failing to train these people in a correct and orderly manner they didn't because it was not there and they are keen and looking for that and looking at a company and they want to see that you have done everything possible to equip and to train them to not have what happened happen. lastly the pictures that he has shown, he takes a lot of pictures and he has ta
improvements aren't funded and this will provide funding to complete those. and then with cal train and bart and regional connection, we have a responsibility to provide a local match to the cal tran program and the provide some additional funds to bart to address some of the over crowding and capacity. so this is a collapsed version, if you will of the current recommendations that are not final and we're addressing it among stake holders. 3030 shows the $3 billion that will be available. if the projected taxes and go bonds are approved by the voters, that will bring us to 70 percent of funding on that need. and we've divided those into core system and investments and enhancement, and expansions. and the vast majority is in core and enhance. so the revenue, what the task force wanted to do is to lack at all revenue options that we know of or potentially available and we have identified three basic, large potential revenue sources. two is two $500 go revenue and that can be used to improve or enhance property, so it doesn't include rolling stock so the big program to replace the vehicl
if not second to the cal trans downtown extension and that's not on here and i guess because there's no one advocating for these types of projects on this body, on this committee, on the mayor's transportation task force. also i think we can do a better job of publicizing this. i can get my constituents and contribute in the discussion that's happening for these -- for these major projects. love for you to bring back to your committee the t-line as an additional -- a project added to the future funds. thank you. >> thank you. commissioner campos. >> thank you mr. chairman and i'll be brief. thank you for your work. the fact that we have a transportation task force is exciting and it's a wonderful thing that we're doing this. i'm looking at it from the perspective of how do we collectively come together to get something that is going to be successful if we take something to the ballot, some of the proposals you're talking about are proposals that we acquired. 2/3 of the san francisco voters so we want to get as many people on board as we can which is one of the reasons why i raised
, transportation, pedestrian safety, and, of course, the thousands of medical lives and a medi-cal and hospital patient lives that will be improved because of the commitments that sutter and cpmc have made par you'll pause and maybe ask how did he do it all? we'll also remembered as complicated as it was every persevered whether it was sideboard lou our community leaders argue housing advocates our people next door and in the tenderloin or the people who are health experts. they all worked closely together with the sutter leadership to form an agreement an agreement as complicated as that was as a high commitment that unsaturate had to make it was a great investment it was sensitive and strong. we have ever promise here this reflects all the values our city has put together and the process as complicated as it was it persevered. on behalf of everyone that's worked hard to get here. i want to thank again mark and warren and cpmc's leadership but everyone who sees the benefits into the future. in years to come you'll see a very good campus of mill professions serving us and take care of so many c

cases in cal where electricity is going up and we are kind of keeping the production flat by doing a lot of conservation but the department has gone beyond that lowered the waste and that was accident and there was one part of the presentation that needs more, and that is the part regarding recycling plastic. it is very important that the public watching this understands that plastic recycling is largely ineffective. the previews on this is that over all plastic, only 5 percent of the plastic that you put in those bins gets recycled. and even the most recycled products which are kind of the pvc, coke bottles, ten percent or less of those get recycled the rest of that plastic material, much of it ends up in informally as the narrow developing countries overseas, and in the landfills because we don't have enough landfill space left in this country. it is important that the people know about that. plastic, the bonds in it break down every time that you recycle it, and so it is not recycling it is called down cycling, you start with a bottle and that becomes, something like this jacket after

. the project will serve local and inter city local buses and anchor the downtown extension of cal train and high speed rail once it's fully built. it's an expensive and complex project and not without challenges like filling up the gap. i know that commissioner kim as chair and the tj board are going through the phases of the project and we're working on a strategy to close the phase 1 funding short fall. this project funding contributions reflect the significance of the project from the medical state and regional level. about 39 percent is from the federal state and 21 from the regional and the remaining 40 san francisco and to be determined sources. looking ahead toward phase 2, i like to work with tjta and the mayor's office to better its project as it is not and should not be considered a san francisco financial lift. the current funding plan which is still under development and requires advocate, it shows the federal state contribution of 52 percent and local shares of 12 percent and 30 percent respectfully. finally in october i met with ben, the executive director of the manage
